The Upper School science curriculum is designed to challenge students to think critically and ask questions about the world around them. The Science Department faculty teaches systematic methods of observation and evaluation, so that students may connect this knowledge with other areas of learning.
The curriculum varies from basic biology to a selection of three Advanced Placement courses. Each student is sure to find science classes that will challenge him or her appropriately.
It is expected that all students will leave Park Tudor School aware of their relationship to living things and to their environment, aware of the place of science and technology in society, and with the ability to think critically about controversial issues that will emerge during their lifetimes.
The computer science curriculum is project-based and focused on actively constructing meaning and knowledge from what is learned in the classroom. By learning fundamental concepts, students are able to work collaboratively on real projects, such as building websites and back-end databases for local nonprofits, building programs used by students and faculty, and creating mobile applications.
